I Forgot to Press Pause

Am I the only one that got way off track during the holidays?

Confession: even as a parent coach I unintentionally let go of routines and forgot some key practices over the past few weeks.

How could I tell?

I felt annoyed, frustrated, irritated, and impatient… a LOT.

What did I do about it? I coached myself (the exact same way I coach my clients) and used the tools available, in this case, a framework straight from my Stress Buster Series.

~Choose to ACT~

🏃🏻‍♀️ Get active: I recommitted to going for a short walk, a quick bike ride, or a few minutes of yoga to get physically active.

🤔 Get curious: I reflected on the emotions I was feeling and what I was needing.

🙏 Get thankful: I remembered the power of gratitude - for my awareness, my process, and the simple things that I had been neglecting to notice while I was off track.

Watch the video below (no Instagram account required) to see why it's especially important if you have kids under the age of three to have a plan when you get overwhelmed:
